    Hi, I know i'll be recieving magic bands with my package, however, I bought a speciality Tower of Terror magic band for a member of my party. How do I get it activated?

    Hello Ann Marie, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hear about your upcoming magical trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few weeks! You should be receiving some Pixie Dust in your mailbox in just a few days by way of your customized complimentary MagicBands, in just a few days.

    I would be happy to walk you through the steps to link your specially purchased MagicBand to a My Disney Experience account. It is important to note that once you link this MagicBand to an account, it cannot be unlinked and added to someone else’s account. First, you will need to sign in to My Disney Experience online or using the My Disney Experience mobile app and from your profile, select the MagicBands and Cards tab. Select “Link a MagicBand” and enter the MagicBand ID number printed on the inside of the MagicBand, right behind the “Mickey” icon in the center of the band. After you enter the MagicBand ID number, you can assign it to a member of your travel party. Confirm your choice and magically, your new MagicBand is linked to your My Disney Experience account.

    You can have more than one active MagicBand linked to your My Disney Experience account. As long as your MagicBands are listed as “active” on your account, you can use them interchangeably during your trip. In fact, I have about a dozen active MagicBands on my account. I like to make sure they are coordinated with my outfit of the day or the special attraction or event I am attending. Please note: if you are flying into Orlando International Airport and using Disney's Magical Express, to pack your MagicBands in a carry on bag. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
